Stefanie Dykes: Signs + Gestures
March 19 - June 18

Signs and Gestures graphicStefanie Dykes admits wanting “. . . to live in the present, but also to dissolve the negative aspects of familiarity by paying close attention to [her] surroundings.” Dykes’ collaborative print projects seek to call out the adverse components of culture, hoping their exposure will help diminish them. The two projects in this exhibition (Token Gestures and Signs of the Times) connected and engaged printmakers to create works that addressed specific global and regional issues. Each project was exhibited at respective IMPACT International Print Conferences.

Dykes is an artist, instructor, and facilitator based in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2003, she co-founded Saltgrass Printmakers, a non-profit printmaking studio and gallery providing educational programs, access to professional-grade printmaking facilities, and collaborative opportunities between artists and the public. Through Saltgrass, Dykes has been able to work on a number of print projects, from the straightforward to the experimental. This exhibition showcases two print projects she recently organized and facilitated. 

Dykes has curated print exhibitions with the Hong Kong Open Print Studio and has exhibited at Impact Conferences (the International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking, Artists, Concepts and Techniques) in Dundee, Scotland; Bristol, England; Barcelona, Spain; Estonia; and Hong Kong. She has received multiple artist grants at both the state and federal level.

About the CoA+A Gallery System: The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
